Maheras - Tartessos
With his fourth outing on Into The Woods Recordings, Maheras delivers “Tartessos,” a nod to his roots in Greece and a journey into dancefloor dub that continues Into The Woods’ tradition for moody and effective dancefloor tools.
“Tartessos” sets the mood of this EP with risers and chord stabs that delay across a four to the floor bass line and kick pattern. Maheras allows the reverb space to build here here, creating atmosphere that builds slowly until the chords drop halfway through and bring an ethereal mood to a peak.
On the flip Roman Flugel delivers an outstanding remix that doubles down on the delays and pushes into more traditional dub tech territory. Flugel divides and multiplies musical elements across a live mixing desk, through effects chains and back to a mix that maintains the momentum of the original rhythm but amplifies the flutters and flourishes.
